Lamont Peterson vs. Dierry Jean: Preview and Prediction for Title Fight
Lefteris Pitarakis/Associated Press

This Saturday night in Washington D.C., Showtime kicks off its 2014 season when IBF light welterweight champion Lamont Peterson puts his belt on the line against unbeaten Dierry Jean of Montreal.

This will be Peterson's first fight back since suffering a brutal Round 3 TKO loss in a title fight to Lucas Matthysse last May. For Jean, this is a major step up in competition.

Peterson grew up on the streets of the capital and has always drawn well there. He should have a friendly crowd on hand to welcome him back this weekend.
